Pot Mint

Bugs on my mint plant that leave sacs on soil - what are they?

My indoor potted mint plant has teeny tiny little bugs, visible to the naked eye but plenty smaller than a gnat or fruit fly. They've left a few little spheres that I assume are egg sacs on the soil. The sacs are spherical and small in size, I'd say about 3/16" in diameter (sushi fans could think large roe), and yellowy and a bit translucent. When squeezed in a kleenex they pop easily. What are these bugs and how can I get rid of them? I'm growing the mint plant for using the leaves in cocktails, so I don't want anything that might make them unsafe for eating, and ideally nothing that would ruin the flavor (if I can get rid of the bugs permanently in one go I'm cool with one batch of leaves that wouldn't taste good). Thanks!
I was just referring to salmon roe in sushi as a size reference. These aren't attached to any of the bugs. There were 3 of them on the soil and I'm guessing they're some sort of egg sac, but I have no idea what insects have those things.

I have no idea what the bugs are. Could they be aphids, and the sushi roe is their sap-swollen bellies?

Two non-toxic methods to get rid of bugs quickly, cheaply, and very safely is to:

1. Take the plant outside and blast the bugs to Kingdom Come with the garden hose. Or, you can try the scaled-down version in your kitchen sink using the sprayer.

2. Put some very dilute liquid soap in a spray bottle and soak the plant, especially the underside of the leaves. Let it sit just long enough to start dripping onto the egg-infested soil, and then rinse it very well and from every angle.
